Haslam Tops $53,000 in Political Related Donations in 2015


Gov. Bill Haslam has made contributions to the re-election campaigns of 10 Republican U.S. senators so far this year, building on a longtime lead over former Democratic Gov. Phil Bredesen in political donations to candidates for federal office, according to Federal Election Commission reports.

In addition to about $43,000 in donations to Republican senators — $5,000 each in most cases; none less than $2,500 — Haslam in 2015 has also sent $10,000 to the state Republican Party’s federal election account and $5,000 to the National Football League’s political action committee donating to federal candidates, the reports show.

The FEC lists individual donations to candidates for federal office by donor name since 1997. A records search under the names “William” and “Bill” Haslam, then combining the two, indicates the governor’s total contributions through June 30, 2015, total almost $500,000.
